Richard and I have carried those traditions into our family too. So we started his birthday weekend with a lovely and loud version of Happy Birthday to wake him up. The kids loved it! While Mia was at school on Friday, Tripp and I went on an adventure to find the best root beer in Dallas. We went to the Dairyette thanks to a suggestion from my friend Lisa. It is rundown, remote, cash only, and the root beer came out in a bottle that looked like moon shine. It was totally worth it. Great root beer!
Richard picked Torchy's for dinner and then we came home for "cake". I used Old Fashioned Vanilla Bluebell ice cream and frosted mugs to make him the perfect root beer float. They were pretty good!
Sunday, Richard and I headed out to "Richard and Jennifer's Day of Frisco Fun!" Richard's parents kept the kiddos and we took a full 24 hour vacation. It was great!
We started with breakfast at the 5th Street Patio Cafe. Quaint and Yummy!

Then we shopped around Frisco for a little bit and headed to the Float Spot for aqua massages and floating. It was a really unique experience. (Thanks Laura!) We definitely left feeling relaxed and rejuvinated. To shake off our floating stupor, we went to drive go-carts and Pole Position Raceway. Not your average go cart track for sure. These cars are fast and helmets are required. I did one race and then decided I would be better suited as the sideline cheerleader. Richard had a blast!

We went to our hotel to check-in and clean up for dinner. It was the Westin Stonebriar and it had beautiful view of the golf course! It also had the "heavenly bed" which I am a big fan of!
Dinner was at Trufire. They have a lovely patio! We had crab dip and shrimp diablo pizza. SO YUMMY! Then we still had time for a movie. My sweet husband let us go see the The Lucky One which is such a chick flick and I loved it!
Happy Birthday Richard! I think 32 looks pretty good on you and I know it is going be a great year!
